So i have Vodafone Cable, we have 15 devices here but use it for a lot of gaming (3 consoles 3 desktops). Looking to upgrade to 5GHZ range and want something that could improve the cable connection (maybe improve ping and speeds). idea and models would be great.

Linksys EA6700 looks pretty good, 135$ from ascent. Gigabit ports and AC WiFi.

Hi, I would be looking at a Mikroik RB750G as your router, and deploy one or more UniFi Pro WAPs.

Hi, the UniFi config software is a Java App that will run on just about anything, once configured you do not need it for the network to continue. I recommend you dont run it on a MS server as I have found it has issues, which I have found preplexing, but hey its free software so you have to run with what it offers, easier to run it on some random client device.
